I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.Psalm 116:1-2
We pray that you have all been well. It’s in times of uncertainty that our faith is tested, and strengthened, the most. It’s easy and normal to feel isolated and alone. But, in Psalm 116: 1-2, we are reminded, and reassured, that Jesus is with us at all times, and to continue being the light of faith He has called all of us to be. We know many of you are doing your part each and every day, whether being an essential worker, on the front lines, helping your neighbours with groceries and checking up on friends and loved ones, while practicing safe distancing, just to name a few. You are a blessing.
We invite you to join us tomorrow for our Sunday morning worship service online. To ensure you are properly connected, you can log in from 10:30 a.m.. We will also use this time for fellowship, before we begin our service at 11:00 a.m.
We are grateful and look forward to connecting with you all.
